The French Riviera

Côte d'Azur, the Mediterranean coast of southeastern France

Located on the French coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the French Riviera (Côte d’Azur, it means “blue coast” in French) has the glitz and glamour rivaled by few places on earth.

Although the Riviera is famous for the glamour of St. Tropez, Monaco or the Cannes Film Festival, there are many other less well known attractions, such as the perched villages of Eze and Gourdon, the perfumeries of Grasse and the glass blowers of Biot, the potters in Vallauris.

The Riviera has been the inspiration for many well-known artists such as Picasso and many of their works are on display in local museums and art galleries.
